Located at the foot of Beacon Hill, The Liberty, a Marriott Luxury Collection Hotel, Boston comprises a richly restored 1851 building (formerly the Charles Street Jail) and a new 16-story tower. Soaring 90 feet, the lobby was formerly the jail's atrium and features the original three-story arched windows and dramatic catwalks. The jail's former exercise yard is now a beautifully landscaped courtyard.
Opened in 2007, The Liberty is one block from both the Charles River Esplanade and Massachusetts General Hospital. A "T" public-transit stop is right outside the hotel. The Massachusetts State House, with its magnificent dome, is a half-mile away. Attractions within 1.5 miles include the Museum of Science, Boston Common, the Public Garden, the aquarium, Faneuil Hall Marketplace, and the Old North Church.
Guests of The Liberty are welcomed with a glass of sparkling wine. CLINK., the hotel's acclaimed restaurant, features small plates, wines by the glass, and signature cocktails. Seating is beneath the soaring lobby rotunda or in the dining area by an original jail cell. The Alibi bar is a Boston hotspot, with drinks and light fare served amid vestiges of the jail (including brick cell walls) or out on the private garden patio with sunset views.
There are concierge services, tours/ticket assistance, luggage storage, and a safe-deposit box located at the front desk. Babysitting or childcare is available for a surcharge. Dance the night away at the nightclub or enjoy the terrace. Have a business function in one of the 10 meeting rooms. The entire hotel is smoke-free.
